This recipe is just stirred together. In the picture above, it looks kind of a mess. I promise you, if you will follow the recipe exactly it will turn out every time. And you can use it for anything you would like!
Cool the rolls and then frost with your favorite frosting.

This recipe is my Aunt Mae's, my mom's sister's recipe. She was a wonderful cook and though she has been gone for many years, her biscuits are alive and well at the Jolley home. I love this recipe. Hope you will too!
Start by mixing all of the dry ingredients together. I didn't show the ingredients so forgive me. Cut in the shortening until crumbly and then add the milk. Mix until just incorporated - it will be sticky!
Pat out the dough with your fingers to around 3/4 inch thick. Cut into circles. I just used the top of a drinking glass. Now this picture doesn't show very many. I only made a half batch of dough and I cut them a little larger than I usually do.
Mae's Baking Powder Biscuits
2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Cream of Tarter
2 tsp. Sugar
1/2 cup Shortening
2/3 cup Milk
Mix the dry ingredients together. Cut in the shortening until it is crumbly. Stir in the milk with a fork until just combined. Dump out onto a lightly floured counter top. Pat to about 3/4 inch thick. Cut into circles and put on a slightly greased pan.
Bake at 450* for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Do not overbake.

So, here goes!
First cook up some good old bacon (sorry I don't have a picture of the bacon cooking) I have decided that bacon is one of those things that I really never want to have to give up. I love everything about bacon. Anyway, cook up your bacon til crispy and then crumble into piece.
Mix together and pour into a casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350* until they are hot and bubbly. Serve. These are so good.
If you like the flavor of these, here is a little secret. You can make just the sauce without the beans, onion, pepper and bacon and use it as BBQ sauce with pulled pork. I do it all the time and my family loves it. I serve it warm and it is so so so good!!!
Cook 6 slices of bacon until crispy (more if you like :)) crumble when cooled
2 cans pork and beans, drained
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 Tbls. chopped green pepper
2 Tbls. bacon grease
Saute until onion starts to look translucent. Add:
1/8 cup +1 Tbls. dark molasses
3/4 c ketchup
2 Tbls. Worchestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke (more if you like them a little more smokey)
1/2 tsp. Franks Red Hot or your favorite hot sauce (opt)
Mix all together and add the crumbled bacon. Pour into a sprayed (for easier clean up) casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake at 350* until bubbly and hot. Serve!
So I told you there is a short cut version too. So here goes! Again, remember I don't measure! This is usually how I roll.
I use the 2 cans of pork and beans or more if I'm going for a larger crowd. I do use the bacon and I do saute the onion and green pepper in the bacon grease. Then I start dumping in ketchup, hickory flavored bbq sauce, a splash of worchestershire sauce, some brown sugar to taste-(and I do taste and add more until I like the flavor) and the liquid smoke. It works. It's yummy and there you go. I maybe even like the throw together a little more. It's almost the same amount of work but it's pretty dang good too! Good Luck!!!!
